It feels like a long time coming, but finally summer is around the corner in Liverpool.

At LEAF and OH ME OH MY – the proudly independent venues set in the city centre’s Bold Street, West Kirby, Smithdown Road and the waterfront – this means gearing up for a busy period of food, drink, music, dancing, dating, wellness and a special long bank holiday Jubilee weekend at the start of June.

With their ever eclectic souls thriving, LEAF and OH ME OH MY continue to celebrate all things fun, creative and inspiring, with a series of dates coming up in late May and into June to look forward to.

LEAF Bold St

Tues 24th May – Anti Dating App Social Night

It’s taken the city by storm. Remember that feeling of locking eyes across the bar with a stranger? That electric moment when someone makes the first move to speak? Getting to know them face-to-face rather than over an app? It’s been two long years of being limited to dating apps and it’s time to break free from Tindering, Bumbling, and meet fellow singles in a, wait for it, non-socially distanced, non-masked-up evening of live music, drinks, laughs, friendship, and maybe even romance. The Anti Dating App Social Night is back.
